Well, I think, at the time, everyone was real excited since it was supposed to be a re-birth along with being next-gen. A lot of people went into it optimistically, with new game mechanics (the only one I really thought might have been interested was "clashing"). However, after playing the game, everything felt a bit too homogenized with CD being comboable and the random element of landing a CC since it only landed on counterhit. It tried to be different, and I didn't really feel like it was KOF anymore. It's like someone took the characters and gave it to some random dev team. Coupled with the typical complaints of the game not being a finished package and what have you, I won't go into that. People love to bash this game, but it is what it is. SNKP learned from their mistake and if XII is what it took to get XIII, then I don't mind at all. Although, now that we have XIII, I say skip XII and look forward to the XIII console release!

Well lah-dee-dah, sorry for not understanding what constitutes an 'acceptable' fighting game mechanic.

Do you know the definition of a comeback mechanic then?

I have KOF XII too, but I hate it, its extremely defensive, unlike other KOFs, for playing defensive I prefer Street Fighter or Garou, not KOF

Actually I feel KOF XII did the best job in preparing me for XIII. XIII is a very defensive game with high damage mix ups in there to punish bull rush players. Personally I wish I would have taken it more seriously before XIII came out so my bad 2002UM habits wouldn't be so blatant in XIII.
Say it with me now: "Variable input lag BAAAAAAD!!!"

XII prepared me 4 XIII and im doing real good. XII was more offensive then anything

The defensive aspect I was referring to was how punishable everything is compared to the earlier games. It makes you think twice before using higher risk moves.

What is compensates with is the fact that the basic punches and kicks have a stronger purpose in the game for setting up your specials, rather then just spamming different specials and rarely using the basic punches and kicks.

All of this makes a very mental game of not giving your opponent too much to work with while looking for your opportunity to strike hard.

My copy of XII is collecting dust now.  Since I have XIII there's no turning back. I would be interested in playing a fully completed XII though. I thought it was interesting aside from st.C>CD>whatever combos.  Clashing is pretty badass.
KOF XIII:
-K'/EX Kyo/EX Iori
-K'/Andy/Kyo
-Benimaru(Duo Lon)/Robert/Takuma(Iori)

Might controls everything.
